Draymond Green scored 14 points on 5-of-8 shooting Thursday to go with eight rebounds, six assists, one 3-pointer, two steals, one block and two turnovers in 37 minutes.

As per usual, Green did an excellent job of running the floor, picking his spots in the offense and he was absolutely locked in on defense, which was something Steve Kerr wanted them to focus on coming out of the All-Star break. Kerr also said prior to the game that he was "100 percent confident" that a strong Warriors run was on the way, and they appear to be headed in that direction picking up a win in their first game out of the break.

Kevin Durant went 7-of-15 from the field and 8-of-10 from the charity stripe on his way to 24 points across 38 minutes in Thursday's win over the Clippers.

KD also added three rebounds, eight assists, two 3-pointers, two swats and two turnovers while he was out there, and he helped set the tone on defense, doing his part to make life difficult for Tobias Harris and Danilo Gallinari on the other end of the floor. He did spend a bit more time than usual playing the facilitator role with Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson going bonkers, but he'll likely be more aggressive with his shot selection on Saturday against OKC.
Feb 23 - 2:11 AM

Klay Thompson scored 19 points on 8-of-14 shooting Thursday, to go with two 3-pointers, two rebounds, one assist, one block and two turnovers in 36 minutes.

Thompson was red hot to start the game, not missing his first shot until late in the second quarter, and he also became the 10th player in Dubs’ history to score 10,000 points in a Warriors’ uniform. Klay essentially roasted anyone who was in front of him, but the hot shooting was also a team-wide trend, as Golden State only missed 11 shots through the first half of action and they hit 62.6% of their shot attempts when all was said and done.
Feb 23 - 2:10 AM

Stephen Curry popped off for 44 points on 14-of-19 shooting in Thursday's 134-127 win over the Clippers, adding eight triples, nine dimes, six boards, two steals and four turnovers in 36 minutes.

The Dubs got off to an incredible start in this one, and Curry had his #StephGonSteph moment early, draining a halfcourt shot at the buzzer to end the first quarter of action. He was also a perfect 8-of-8 from the charity stripe, giving him a remarkable 94.2 true shooting percentage on the evening to accompany his 33.1 usage rate, and it looks like Steph has a decent chance of putting together yet another 50-40-90 season.

Russell Westbrook hit a buzzer-beating jumper to defeat the Kings 110-107 on Thursday, scoring 17 points with 15 rebounds, 11 assists, two steals, one 3-pointer and eight turnovers in 38 minutes.

He was open for a 3-pointer near the top of the key for one of the flattest triples you'll see this season, but it still counts for three. Before the game-winner, this was the 33rd time he's posted a triple-double before the fourth quarter in his career, and he had plenty of time to spare with it coming at the 7:04 mark in third quarter. Westbrook is up to 97 career triple-doubles and he'll likely be at 100 in the next couple weeks. He's not going to have the historic year like his MVP 2016-17 campaign, but Westbrook has been better after a slow start a couple months ago.

Josh Huestis made a start at shooting guard against the Kings on Thursday, scoring two points with two rebounds in 14 minutes.

Even with the OKC first unit scoring a bunch in the first quarter, Huestis was not really involved in the offense. Even if he does continue to start, he's not going to produce enough stats to be worthy of a scoop in most fantasy leagues.
Feb 23 - 1:11 AM

Alex Abrines (hip) scored three points with one steal in six minutes against the Kings on Thursday.

He came off the bench with coach Billy Donovan going with Josh Huestis to start. Donovan has talked about how he likes consistency in his second unit, so maybe this lineup sticks. Abrines is only a 3-pointers specialist in very deep leagues.
Feb 23 - 1:11 AM

Skal Labissiere returned from a three-week absence against the Thunder on Thursday, scoring 10 points with two rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 25 minutes.

He actually looked healthy this time, which is encouraging because he was laboring through his shoulder injury for multiple weeks before he was finally shut down on Feb. 1. Labissiere is still going to have his ups and downs, and you never really know what coach Dave Joerger has lined up for his rotation. We'd like to see him play better next time, but for now he's more of a 16-team add.
